•the early bird gets the gummies•
After our Annie's organic bunny snacks ran out last night, the things we found to reward late-coming trick-or-treaters would have been more heartily appreciated by Freecycle. The options for the gaggle of Lady Gagas and Freddy Kruegers?
1980s cat and bat Pez dispensers.
Peppermints and root beer barrels from Christmases past.
Crystal Light "On the Go!" packets.
Halls' hard candy (tangerine flavor).
A single serving of Taster's Choice.
Dry roasted peanuts, courtesy of Southwest Airlines.
A single jelly bean.
A small package of crackers.
A brazil nut.
A piece of Trident gum.
"I call Trident!" I heard one kid exclaim. "Weird..." said another, and still another stood in the doorway, saying "this Pez is empty. It's empty." Poor thing kept repeating "empty" to my husband, in the vain hope he would produce... something for her pains? Although everyone selected something from the mix (and some even smiled), approximately zero found the assortment as amusing as we did.
p.s. Our plan for next year? Fill the bowl with Emergen-C and Celestial Seasonings.
